The Inaugural Red Nose Research Series brings together leading researchers and health professionals who are working towards reducing the unacceptably high loss of lives to stillbirth and SUDI. Stillbirth is a significant health issue worldwide, which is multifactorial and includes biological, social and service-related factors all contributing to the risks. Research into the development of test prevention strategies needs to occur and actions to drive findings into practice ensue. In addition, targeted education, which is robust, is essential to the success of our mission to reduce stillbirth rates. Whilst the rates of SUDI have reduced dramatically, the focus on continued education and research is paramount to eradicate both SUDI and stillbirth.

The speakers are:

  • Dr Miranda Davies-Tuck: Preventing term stillbirth in South Asian born mothers
  • Dr Maryam Mozooni: The effect of migration and acculturation on risk of stillbirth in Western Australia
  • Dr Adrienne Gordon: Sleep in Pregnancy Pilot Trial (SLiPP)
  • Prof Heather Jeffery: Update on SUDI: the past, the present and the future
